Over at Reddit, in the same thread that apparently verifies WildStar is going Free to Play, a Carbine Studios employee let the cat out of the bag that Blade & Soul is still coming to the West, and that it's already in Friends & Family beta testing internally.
See this link for the post.
Unless you count QA, which actually is not even a part of Carbine but NC Interactive now, we have some tester that are working on Blade and Soul, which is now in Friends and Family beta by the way, and a handful of Lineage and Aion testers to go along with the web and platform testers, however several of them are leaving in the next couple of weeks as well since QA is a terrible, terrible job here at Carbine/NCI nowadays.
It's hardly an official announcement, but we've reached out to NCSoft for confirmation. Hopefully we know more in the coming days and weeks.
